Options for Pet Turf

When preparing to buy pet-friendly turf, it’s important to look for high-quality synthetic materials in a design that offers efficient drainage. By utilizing materials that include antimicrobial agents, you can neutralize odors from feces and urine.

At Greatmats, we have many different styles of turf for dogs that will keep your best friends safe and comfortable. Our dog turf is manufactured to tight tolerances, so you can trust the designs to deliver long-lasting performance. You can expect the cost to fall in between $2 and $7 per square foot.

Standard artificial turf rolls are 15 ft wide and custom-cut to your desired length. We do offer a couple of products that are 7.5 ft wide and would be better suited for smaller application areas.

Features and Benefits of Artificial Grass for Dogs & Pets

Our fake grass for dogs has several features that make it ideal for use around pets. The benefits include:
  • Heavy-duty materials: Our pet-safe turf often uses high-quality polyurethane in the blades, which can easily withstand the constant movement of pets.
  • Resistant to pet waste: Unlike natural grass, pet-friendly turf won’t discolor or die when pets urinate or defecate on it.
  • Antimicrobial agents: Many of our artificial grass dog products contain antimicrobial properties that neutralize odors from urine and feces, while also preventing the growth of toxins.
  • Minimal maintenance: Our fake grass products for dogs are easy to clean and do not require regular maintenance, saving you time and effort.
  • Soft feel underfoot: Our recommended products are comfortable and safe, making it great for nap time, pet paws, and your bare feet.
  • No pests: Ticks and fleas do not tend to live around artificial grass – as they prefer natural grass – which gives your pets some extra protection from these parasites.

  • Sweep or use a leaf blower for dry debris

Pet Turf Vs. Regular Turf

Although you could use any type of artificial grass with your pets, you’ll have better results when you focus on products that are specifically made for use around dogs.

Some of the key characteristics include:
  • Easy to clean
  • Drains fully after rinsing
  • Antimicrobial agents to reduce odor
  • Resistant to wear from dogs pacing near a fence
  • Resistant to dogs digging at it
  • Comfortable on paws and when pets are laying down

Some of the key characteristics of regular synthetic turf products include:
  • Various pile height options
  • Various color options for a pleasing design

  • Reduces static electricity buildup

For many forms of pet-safe turf, it is recommended that 1-2 lbs. of infill per sq. ft. be added, but not all require infill.

Pet Turf Q&A

Is synthetic grass good for animals?

Yes, as long as the installation happens with a high-quality product. Creating a pet play area is safe, as the materials we use in our products are not toxic to an animal or child. Additionally, versus natural grass, there is no need to add pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, which can be poisonous to animals.

What is the best artificial turf for dogs?

The best canine artificial turf products work both for use at home or at a commercial facility. Whether you need a product that easily allows rainwater (and pee) to drain through to the ground underneath or you want durability, Greatmats has products that fit these specific use cases.

Can you do a pet turf installation yourself?

Of course, but it goes significantly faster if more people are involved. Often, these rolls can be extremely heavy, so power equipment helps. Smaller sections may be OK for a single person to handle. Some of our customers choose to hire a pro to handle the installation process, while others will look to save some money and attempt to install the pet turf on their own.

Can pets pee and poop on artificial grass?

Sure! When canines are on fake pet grass materials, they can continue to do their business, especially in a doggy daycare environment. It is designed to allow for drainage. In the case of solid waste, treat it as if it happened in a public place. Solids won’t damage it, but periodic cleaning is still recommended.

How do you clean artificial grass for dogs?

To clean your pet turf, start by removing dry debris with a broom or leaf blower. Pick up any dog poop with a scooper. Rinse with a garden hose to dilute urine. You may need to use a rake occasionally to fluff up the fibers.
